SOPOSE'09 Call for Papers
4th International Workshop on Service- and Process-Oriented Software Engineering (SOPOSE-09)
Workshop webpage:

SOPOSE'09 is held in conjunction with the 2009 IEEE International Conference on Services Computing (SCC 2009), September 21-25, 2009, Bangalore, India (
Theme of the Workshop:

It is now widely recognized that service-oriented computing will be the dominant computing paradigm for at least the next decade. Businesses are also increasingly committing to a process-oriented approach in Business Process Management (BPM), which requires careful modelling, documentation and management, as well as continual improvement of, business processes. The software engineering questions relating to service-oriented systems, as well as those relating to process-oriented systems have not been adequately explored. Of prime interest is the interplay between the service-oriented way of delivering software, and BPM way of looking at business processes, as a result of which we are witnessing a confluence of the service-oriented and process-oriented approaches, as key elements of business processes get executed by external (and often remote) services. The software engineering questions relating to such integrated process- and service-oriented need to fulfil the promise of making the software development process flexible, agile, and understandable for business people. There are a plethora of research issues on how such systems might be modelled, designed, implemented and how their lifecycles might be managed. This workshop seeks to systematize our understanding of these issues, and build a community of like-minded researchers and practitioners willing to collaborate on these issues.
Innovations in SOPOSE-09:

We propose to adopt a model (common in social science conferences) where each paper has a nominated "discussant" who critiques the paper for approximately 5 minutes at the end of the presentation of the paper. Each paper would thus have 20 minutes for presentation, 5 minutes for critique by the discussant and 5 minutes of general questions from the audience.

We offer a collection of case studies (available at that submissions will be asked to address (if relevant). Papers making conceptual, technical or methodological contributions to process lifecycle management will be encouraged to use these case studies to motivate and explain their work.

Distinct from these case studies, the workshop will actively encourage case study-style papers, particularly from industry participants. SOPOSE'09 will involve a special session on creating a community repository of case studies on service and process lifecycle management.
Workshop Topics:

Topics to be addressed in the workshop include (but are not limited to) the following.
Description (including Standards)
Design Methodologies (Granularity)
Dynamic Service Binding
Evolution and Versioning
Realization from Legacy
